How Two New California Laws Affect the Hiring Process

December 21, 2017  |  From HRCalifornia Extra

Two laws taking effect January 1, 2018, will significantly change the hiring process for California employers:

  • AB 168 prohibits employers from asking about an applicant’s salary history and from using salary history in hiring and salary decisions; and
  • AB 1008 enacts a state-wide “ban the box” law that limits how and when employers can consider criminal history in hiring decisions.​
